Complete (Incredible) Yarn Craft Kits

If you are new to knitting or crochet, you may not have all the tools and supplies that you need to get started on a project. And you may not know where to go to find the exact yarn you need for a project. You just want to get going and not have to worry about collecting all the supplies! That can be half the battle. So I’ve collected some projects that are all put together with everything that you need in order to make these fantastic crafts!

I am in complete awe of this fantastic flying saucer with alien & cow kit from lalylaland. And get this: it’s not just a cute decorative item, it’s a pull-toy with the theme song from X-Files! How much fun would it be to make this for your nerdy friend (or their baby!)? So great. I can’t get over how much I love this. This kit comes with all the special stuff you need that would be extra hard to find, so you can really make something different! It’s available for pre-order right now, but they’re due to ship by Nov 23, so get your order in for this awesome kit!

Big knits are all the rage right now. Those giant arm-knit blankets look so cozy and this floor pouf ottoman knitting kit would make a fantastic accessory with your giant knit blanket! 

There are also similar giant crochet project kits to get you started with your extreme crocheting.  Check out this Extreme Crochet Starter Kit if you’ve always wanted to try big crochet but didn’t know where to start.

Going back to smaller projects, amigurumi is a fantastic way to introduce a new crocheter to the craft, with a cute result that is very motivating. This Robin Crochet Kit is a small project kit that would make a perfect gift for a beginner crocheter.

Or once you get established as a crocheter, this slightly bigger Crochet Sheep kit is another adorable craft kit that includes the yarn, fiberfill, safety eyes and embroidery floss that you need to make this adorable stuffed lamb toy. You will still need basic crochet supplies (hook, stitch marker, yarn needle & scissors). If you’re new to crochet, you might find this hook set with accessories helpful.

This Mommy & Me Crochet Hat Set Kit would be fantastic for starting a new mom into the world of crochet. Everything she needs to make matching hats for herself and her little one! Adorable.

If you’re looking for more of a Christmassy feel for your crochet kit projects for this time of year, check out this adorable little Christmas Snowman Amigurumi Crochet Kit. He would crochet up quickly and be a great decoration for the winter season!

Beginner Crochet Hat Patterns

Hats are the perfect projects for beginner crocheters to learn this new skill! They only require a small investment of a ball of yarn (a partial ball, really!) and a hook for the most basic pattern. They are small projects that can feed a sense of accomplishment, which is what you really need when you’re learning. Also, if your budget is tight this year, learning to crochet some hats for those on your gift list, is a great way to save some money while still giving awesome gifts. I have compiled a bunch of hat crochet patterns with beginner crocheters in mind. 

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

First up is this Estrela Beanie Crochet Pattern by HookedHazel; it features a delicate, interesting textured stitch, that even a beginner crocheter will pick up quickly! Don’t forget to pick yourself up some lovely (faux… because… animals) fur pompoms to finish off the look!

Next up is this Lincoln City Beanie by Fiber and Fern Designs. It works up quick and comes with 2 sizes, so you can even make a Mommy & Me set! What a fun gift!

Another easy crochet hat pattern is this lovely twist bobble stitch crochet hat pattern by HM made Belaurs. I know, maybe you don’t believe me, but you could be making stuff like this if you just have the right pattern! Easy peasy!

Here’s another super trendy, yet EASY crochet hat pattern, The Linden Beanie by Cozy Moon Designs. (Can you tell I have a thing for the fur pompoms?)

Once you get confident in your skills you’ll be making awesome stuff likeon this lovely Loretta Hat crochet pattern by Erin Nims. Trust me, you can do this!

But if you’re feeling gun-shy on the textures, The Caysen Crochet Hat Pattern is so easy and made with a chunky yarn, so it will come together super quick and you’ll amaze your friends with your mad crochet skills. And they won’t even know you just learned. Before you know it, people will be telling you to open up an Etsy shop.

If your granny ever tried to teach you the granny square, you have almost all the skills you need to make this adorable hat: The Madison Beanie from Darling Be Brave. It’s completely beginner friendly with step by step photo tutorials.

This sweet little hat “My First Hat” by Whimsy Woolies promises to be your first hat: it is designed with the beginner in mind! And you get to learn to crochet that lovely flower! Bonus! Perfect hat for a lovely little newborn!

PDF patterns are a handy way to get a pattern quickly and without all the ads that often come with free patterns that designers offer on their blogs. I have no problem with bloggers and designers having ads on their site, but it sure is nice to have a beautiful, printable pdf with the pattern, where the screen doesn’t go to sleep while you’re working on your project. It’s also easier to mark up and make notes as you’re going along. Sometimes old-school is just better.
